Greetings to all!

I'm starting this thread for the support of the USB-stick image and the Virtual Machine Appliance that have been created for the 11th OpenFOAM® Workshop 26-30 June 2016 - Guimarães - Portugal

A complete wiki page with sub-pages has been created for detailing all of the steps taken for creating and deploying this image and is currently available here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...tick_for_OFW11

The list of software made (and planned to be) available on these is listed on the chapter 2 "Software provided with the disk image(s)" of the User Guide that was written for this Workshop.

Now, it depends on which one you want to use:
  1. If you want to write the USB-stick image in a real physical USB drive with at least 8GB of capacity, in which you are willing to delete everything you have inside that USB drive, then please follow these steps:
    1. Follow the instructions written here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...to_a_new_stick - namely starting from the chapter 2 "Cloning the image to a new stick".
    2. Once you've successfully burned the image into a USB drive, follow the instructions given on the User Guide page: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...W11/User_Guide
  2. If want to not risk having to go through a lengthy process of burning the image onto a USB drive, then you can instead use the Virtual Machine Appliance in VirtualBox, which should work on any 64-bit machine:
    1. Start reading the User Guide: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...W11/User_Guide
    2. When you reach the chapter 3 "Booting", choose the section 3.3 "Booting without USB-stick and with Virtual Machine Appliance".
Beyond this, please keep in mind that:
  • If you have any problems with either one of these solutions, please let me/us know on this support thread you are currently reading
  • In addition, check the Frequently Asked Questions page, just in case you don't want to read the posts below, before asking your question.
  • At the time of this writing, the image/VM version was v3 and will be updated (hopefully) at least once a month to sync up with the latest OpenFOAM 3.0.x and foam-extend 3.2-nextRelease changes, along with the addition a more software.

Best regards,
Bruno and the Local Organising Committee of the OFW11

djierian is on a distinguished road
is there any way to install this on an existing virtual box? I would like to demo the HELYX OS beta, and am having trouble installing the workshop files with enough hard drive space to make it useful.

-Danny

EDIT: I have solved this issue. Feel free to PM me if you need help

Quick answer: Sorry for the late reply. You could mount the USB stick image using a loop, it's just a matter of Googling for:
Code:
mount image file on linux
Then mount the squashed image file from the mounted drive like this:
Code:
mount /cdrom/HELYX-OS.sqfs /home/lubuntu/OpenFOAM/HELYX-OS -t squashfs -o loop,ro
Sorry for not providing more details sooner nor now, but I haven't managed to take a better look into this, since this mode of operation wasn't planned for the workshop
